Sebastian Vettel - Championship Lead, Reward For Hard Work

Sebastian Vettel - Championship Lead, Reward For Hard Work


The Ferrari Sebastian Vettel, after the Hungarian GP leads the Championship with 14 Points ahead of Mercedes Lewis Hamilton.  He believes that the lead reflects how much hard work is done by the team.

The Ferrari outfit won the Hungarian GP, which was his first win since Monaco in May and since 2013 he has not led points at this stage if the competition. 

"It's been rewarding for the team," Vettel explained. "It's a fact to say in the last couple of years we didn't have the best car and a fact to say in the last few years we weren't the strongest as developing the car, but I think if you look at the progression this year is a different story and we keep progressing.

"It's more important to lead the championship after the last race, but I think it's the best position to be in, you don't want to be on the back foot. Equally the season is long, there's a lot    races to come and a lot of things that can happen."

Ferrari still leads the championship and their Driver believes, his team is capable of maintaining the lead till the end of the campaign and also cut down Constructors Champions points from 39 and even leading.

"The team is a much better shape this year," he said. "I think we have all the ingredients to stay there and have a good second half of the season. If you have the right results coming your way you start to pick up a bit of momentum so it's up to us to keep it going, but I'm quite confident we have the right people, we know how to build a good car, we've also improved the engine massively, so everything is going in the right direction. We will see in terms of time whether we will be ahead of behind but I'm confident we will be there and fight for hopefully a lot of big points.

"We brought a lot of bits, we have seen a lot of bits from other people copying us, but that's a good sign and a testimony of hard and good work and the achievement that has gone into this car and this project. We will keep pushing flat out. I think we've been competitive everywhere we went. It's true also to say Mercedes has been more competitive [in some places] and we've been a bit behind.

"It's normal that from track to track there's a bit of a difference. We want to be quickest at every place we go which is currently not the case, but we're working on it. We have quite a good understanding of what the car needs and now we have some time to look into a couple of things with peace and calm. What's important is that we know what we need."
